The affidavit of probable cause was filed with the prosecutor’s office by a Warsaw Police Officer. The document states an undercover purchase was made with Rhamey in his garage.
The arrest came after an investigation of a chemical odor smell associated with manufacturing meth. Officers met with Rhamey, in the garage. After admitting he resided at the residence, was searched by police. Officers found pseudoephedrine pills in blister packs and a meth smoking device in a shirt pocket. They also found a pseudoephedrine box wrapped in duct tape, identified as that officers had provided the informant.

Rhamey told police he allows individuals to manufacture meth at his residence and he trades meth in exchange for pseudoephedrine pills. He also keeps meth at his residence to deal the drug.
